Brussel Sprouts Poriyal | Brussel Sprouts Stir Fry With Moongdal | Indian Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Brussel Sprouts Poriyal
Today's  recipe is a simple and healthy stir fry using Brussel Sprouts. Brusse Sprouts is a small leafy green vegetable that looks like a mini cabbage. And also the taste and flavor similar to cabbage. Once in a while I buy Brussel sprouts and make Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts like Broccoli, Kootu and this Poriyal. Brussel Sprouts pairs well with Indian spices and any south Indian dishes like Sambar, Kootu, Poriyal, Kurma with brussel sprouts tastes great.
